Un roman historique de Jules Verne, où après avoir compulsé les archives, il nous donne sa version sympathique aux nordistes de la guerre de Sécession aux Etats-Unis. La discrimination raciale et la persécution des Noirs telles que constatées ont des résonnances presque familières à nos oreilles contemporaines. Ecrit en 1887, cet ouvrage se situe en bonne place entre Beecher-Stove (##La case de l'oncle Tom##, 1852) et Margaret Mitchell (##Autant en emporte le vent##, 1936)

Protože nemohli opravit poškozenou loď, bylichlapci donuceni žít v pusté, divoké přírodě, odkázáni sami na sebe. Usídlí se v jeskyni, sami si opatřují potravu, podle mapy mrtvého trosečníka postupně probádají ostrov, ochočí si různá zvířata,Musí však bojovat nejen s přírodou, ale i s vlastním sobectvím, individualismem a někdy až vyloženým odporem ke kolektivu. Pod hrozbou společného nebezpečí - když se na ostrov dostane skupina zločinců - se však rozdělení chlapcispojí v opravdu pevný kolektiv, jemuž se podaří nakonec za pomoci dvou dospělých lidí vrátit se i do novozélandských domovů.
